"Almost certainly bad" he says, without a shred of evidence... It will not serve you to sum up all the taxi regulations around the world which Uber is falling foul of as being "almost certainly bad for the industry", as that patently isn't true. You are comparing regulations in well-functioning countries with those in fucked-up places, as if they have the same effect in both. You are not doing your argument any favours with that sort of over-simplistic nonsense.

I think you'll find it's predominately poor people who are overrepresented in the crime statistics. Non-white people have generally had a harder time in the US than white people, and that continues to this day, which goes a long way to explaining their overrepresentation. Your misses-the-point-entirely-but-is-too-caught-up-in-petty-racism-to-even-realise post shows just how dangerous opinions like yours spread and persist.
